When you’re running a firm it can be hard to stop and think

Best practice isn’t just for big and global firms. Success lies in understanding, planning and common sense. That’s why we’ve developed a range of fixed-fee services for smaller professional firms.

Marketing and business development audits

If you’re giving some thought to marketing at the moment this is a really great place to start because it sets out what’s working, what isn’t and a logical plan of action. This will be tailored to your objectives. We can look at your entire marketing and business development activity (or inactivity) or one particular area (for example digital marketing or client care). Using a mixture of primary and secondary research methods, we’ll take a really ‘warts and all’ look at what you want to achieve, what you’re doing and the barriers that will stop you achieving your objectives. Whatever we find we’ll write it all up with a R(ed) A(mber) G(reen) report, showing the ‘hot list’ of things you need to do next. The results are presented in plain English and a way that you can ‘pick up and work with’. Find out more…

 

Strategic planning and action plans

We think our audits are a fantastic place to start – a chance to take a step back and see the things that will stop you from achieving objectives. The logical next step is usually to work out an action plan and marketing strategy, setting out what you’re going to do over the coming year (and longer) to achieve each of your organisational objectives.

Mentoring and coaching

Alongside all of our audits and planning we offer mentoring and coaching for partners or marketing professionals. This is perfect for keeping plans on track as well as skill development. Find out more…

What to focus on now, what to focus on next

For firms to understand how CSR and Responsibility can benefit them and society is relatively straightforward. Similarly, reporting on what you’re doing as well as some of its impact can be straightforward. Whilst it might take cultural change as well as expense to...

Purpose in action, Purpose in detail

In part two of this series of articles I looked in detail at the concepts of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), Responsibility and Purpose. I identified the clear need for business in general, but in this instance specifically law firms, to have at least the...

Introducing The Purpose Pathway

Let’s call a spade a spade. Lawyers don’t have the best reputation for being ‘nice people’. There are endless jokes about sharks, arguments and hatchets that pop up with even the simplest Google search. Yet, as consumers question, increasingly, the role that business...

The Role of the Law Firm in a post-COVID changing world

COVID-19 has changed the world. The pandemic and the associated lockdowns have not merely curtailed the normal life we knew. In some cases they have swept it away entirely. There have been practical issues such as getting used to video conferencing platforms, figuring...

Trustworthiness in business – can you trust it?

Trust. A little word for a huge concept. A commodity that, in life as well as in business, is one of the hardest to earn but the easiest to lose. It can be argued to be the foundation of every successful business, because whether you are providing world class legal...
